It's difficult choosing an excerpt when you don't want to give spoilers, so please forgive my use of pronouns. This week...since I know y'all ladies like to visualize our male protagonist, I figured I'd give you a peek. Yes, as always, this is a mystery, but that doesn't mean it can't be spicy and romantic. :)
Once unlatched, she edged open the door, peeking through the two-inch gap. He was shirtless on the floor, his back glistening with sweat. He pushed himself off the wood slats and was on his feet in a second as though he were standing at attention.
The sweats they’d loaned him—Derrick’s, since he was the same height—sat low on his hips, revealing a finely tuned upper body and a thin line of barely visible golden hair disappearing into the waistband.
The moisture on his tanned skin shimmered beneath the overhead track lights, highlighting every muscle on his well-sculpted chest. And she couldn’t help but follow the dew as it descended to his abs that looked as though a sculptor had carved them out of bronze. God, why did he have to look so good?
He wiped his brow with a hand towel. “Good morning, Princess ____.”
Coming to, she shook her head. She'd told him not to call her by her full first name, and the princess bit... Ugh! “Just when I thought we might be able to have a normal conversation over breakfast.” She backed out from where she entered, shut and locked the door, and went upstairs to eat breakfast—alone.
Today, she would start her vacation, as much as a vacation as it could be with him downstairs.
If you've read Creatus Book One, I'm sure you know these two characters. I hope you enjoyed the excerpt I chose and will look forward to their story.
If you haven't read any of the books yet...the Creatus Series is not your normal paranormal story...it's a twist of the myths you've heard your entire life. Prepare to believe...
